Touchscreen Has-beens

(I and another colleague are talking to two elderly ladies.)

Lady #1: “You could just help us with one more thing.”

Lady #2: “You see that red button in the corner of the screen?”

(They indicate the interactive red button that accesses extra services, which you press on your remote.)

Me: “Yes?”

Lady #1: “Well, the TV says to press it and nothing happens. Actually, let’s see if it works now!”

([Lady #1] presses the red button and nothing happens. I immediately see the problem.)

Lady #1: “You see! Your TVs are broken, too!”

Lady #2: “Oh, it’s working now.”

Me: “I’ve just pressed the red button on the remote. Not on the screen.”
